From what I have read lately a couple people suggest self love is gained by updating. That is to say by letting go of past out of ideas ideas of who we think we are. So since ever I can remember I had this desire to lose weight. I felt I needed to I felt ashamed that is was a must. I have let a lot of the shame out of it now. I think I am attractive at my size.
I remember I excited I was to go workout to listen to music to have alone time to recharge to get that runners high to feel accomplished like I was crossing an imporatnt thing off my to do list and I wasn’t procrastinating I was taking aciton now and I love the momentum I was creating I love how I look like a boxer an athlete.

I have been eating very well all this week. I feel full with smaller portions, I have refused sugar and junk that was offered to me. It is great to get out of this victim mentally. I am in charge here I make decisions.
I have realised that looking back at the past few years where I wasn’t putting eating right as a priority how I gained weight. It was costing me a lot of money going out and getting my lunch at the bakery and pizza and sandwiches lots fo heavy food.
My body craves and needs vitamins and to be free of body clutter
here is a picture of me about 5-6 years ago when I was going to the gym regularly, keeping an fitness and gratitude journal recording my progress and learnings, where I had seen a personal trainer and was eating meals at certain times of the day. Look at that smile and energy. I can do this I can go back there and surpass it.
I have made up a few lists of reasons why I wanted to lose weight before and the reasons seem to be to try to fit a mould to please others or rather to meet their expectations as I felt I was falling short. Now I feel like I have my own reasons they feel right to me.
I lifted weights again today. 45 reps 3 times a week is my objectives. I am all dumbbells and salads aahha
